Chara vs. Athas vs. Ananda

We love the name ’Joy’ and were planning on giving it to our daughter, who will arrive pretty soon. Our next-door neighbors (we are very good friends, and they have a little boy named Hudson) decided to name THEIR daughter Joy at the last minute. They chose to keep the gender a surprise, as well as their planned names (we’ve been keeping our fav. name a secret too), so we totally weren’t expecting this to happen. Nonetheless, we have chosen still to name her Joy - just in another language. We think it’s creative and a bit unique and cute, especially since she and the other Joy will most likely be close friends and see each other a lot. We don’t want the girls to have the same first name mostly for the reason that it will get confusing,etc. We just don’t really know which one of these versions of Joy to use, so if you could help us out a little, it would mean a lot. Thanks, Keira and John. This is first child, she doesn’t have any siblings. I’ve noticed a lot of the poll mention sibling names, I guess it makes it easier to choose a name because you can pick by flow with sibling names as well. Sorry ;) Also, her middle name will be Grace, after grandmother.

We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
